Paul, who retired from UCC in 2015, is a musicologist who joined UCC in 1981, becoming Senior Lecturer in 1994. From 2003 to 2009 he served as Head of the Department of Music, and was previously Acting Head of Department for two six-month periods and chair of the Department's Graduate Studies Committee in 2000-3. In 2011-15 he again chaired the Department's Graduate Studies Committee, and was, in 2013-15, programme director of the MA in Music and Cultural History. His teaching focuses on Italian and English music in the 17th and 18th centuries, baroque opera and oratorio, the music of Handel, Vivaldi and Purcell, source studies and music editing. Originally from London, Paul studied for his BMus degree at the University of Sheffield before undertaking his doctoral research at the University of Liverpool, where he began lecturing, publishing, and directing concerts. In recent years the primary focuses of his work have been on online methodology for musicology, database development, and the founding, in 2005, of the peer-reviewed Journal of the Society for Musicology in Ireland, of which he was the first Executive Editor (2005-9).

Research Interests

Paul is the author of The Manchester Concerto Partbooks (New York, 1989), Vivaldi: The Four Seasons and Other Concertos Op. 8 (Cambridge University Press, 1996), numerous journal articles and many critical editions of music. He is a member of the Editorial Committee of the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi, responsible for the new critical edition of the works of Vivaldi published by Ricordi (from 1982), and has worked with other music publishers too, including Oxford University Press and Edition HH (UK). He is currently developing his own interactive online database for the dissemination and sharing of his research at http://vivaldi.databassist.com/, which was formally launched on 16 June 2007 at the international conference `Antonio Vivaldi: Past and Future' in Venice, hosted at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini by the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi.

Paul was one of the founding members of the Society for Musicology in Ireland (from 2003) and the first Executive Editor, from 2005 to 2009, of the Journal of the Society for Musicology in Ireland, a peer-reviewed journal, accessible online worldwide, that is hosted at UCC. He continues to serve on the journal's Editorial Board.

Paul's research interests may be summarized as
* the works of Antonio Vivaldi, particularly as revealed by their original MS sources and their dating;
* Italian and English manuscripts and prints of the 17th and 18th centuries;
* the early-18th-century concerto;
* Handel's autographs and compositional method;
* critical editorial methodology for modern editions of music;
* the internet as an environment for musicology, notably through online database development;
* computer-based music encoding.
